Punctum's Public Cooling House

hero
PUNCTUM’S PUBLIC COOLING HOUSE…part art house/ part bath house.

This December Punctum’s Public Cooling House will take pride of place at Green Point, Brighton.

Taking big questions surrounding our ‘water future’ and turning them into an experience of serene reflection, Punctum’s Public Cooling House is a uniquely dry-country approach to a chillout.

Punctum's Public Cooling House combines science, architecture, performance and ancient evaporative cooling techniques. Mirroring the cultural edges of bathing rituals and cooling practices, Attendants invite you to slip off your shoes, socks and sandals, roll up your sleeves, skirts, and slacks, and step inside the Public Cooling House. Here you will have your hands and feet cleansed and cooled before being led to an individual pool where different traditional bathing practices will be explained. Drifts of river soundscapes and recorded stories of culturally diverse connections to water fill the ‘House’ and flow around the ‘cooling pools’.

Exploring traditional cooling techniques, this unique experience draws from simple and ancient evaporative cooling systems while presenting live ‘water works’ by renowned artists.

It’s a cool place for a hot future.

These sessions are free and bookings are essential.
